Forgot password? | Guest Member Login | Register Information About In Network Providers CMS is actively engaged in addressing the opioid epidemic and committed to implementing effective tools in Medicare Part D. We will work across all stakeholder, beneficiary and advocacy groups, health plans, and other federal partners to help address this devastating epidemic. CMS has worked with plan sponsors and other stakeholders to implement Medicare Part D opioid overutilization policies with multiple initiatives to address opioid overutilization in Medicare Part D through a medication safety approach. These initiatives include better formulary and utilization management; real-time safety alerts at the pharmacy aimed at coordinated care; retrospective identification of high risk opioid overutilizers who may need case management; and regular actionable patient safety reports based on quality metrics to sponsors.
(2) Requests for payment. If, on redetermination of a request for payment, the Part D plan sponsor reverses its coverage determination, the Part D plan sponsor must authorize payment for the benefit within 14 calendar days from the date it receives the request for redetermination, and make payment no later than 30 calendar days after the date the plan sponsor receives the request for redetermination.
In paragraph (c)(5)(i), we propose that a Part D plan sponsor must reject, or must require its pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) to reject, a pharmacy claim for a Part D drug unless the claim contains the active and valid National Provider Identifier (NPI) of the prescriber who prescribed the drug. This requirement is consistent with existing policy.
Under the authority of section 1857(a) of the Act, CMS enters into contracts with MA organizations which authorize Start Printed Page 56461them to offer MA plans to Medicare beneficiaries. Similarly, CMS contracts with Part D plan sponsors according to section 1860D-12(a) of the Act. CMS determines that an organization is qualified to hold an MA contract through the application process established at 42 CFR 422, Subpart K. CMS evaluates the qualifications of potential Part D plan sponsors according to Subpart K of 42 CFR, part 423. If CMS denies an application, organizations have the right to appeal CMS's decision (under § 422.502(c)(3)(iii) and § 423.503(c)(3)(iii) using the procedures in subparts N of part 422 and part 423). This proposed rule seeks to correct an inconsistency in the text that identifies CMS's deadline for rendering its determination on appeals of application denials.
